"Pets leave paw prints on our hearts."
Lately have been really missing my beloved Yorkie, Nikki.
He was more than a pet ..
More than a companion.
In many ways he was the best of me ...
He was my heart and soul ...
Losing him broke my heart into so many pieces .
When I was sick .. he was there before I realized I was not feeling very well.
If I cried ... he was a furry Kleenex, frantically trying to get every tear before it even fell.
If I moved ... he was beside me, ahead of me, sometimes even tripping me .... ow !! LOL!!
Always sitting near me but mostly on my lap.
At night he slept on my chest til I was asleep ....
then moved to a nearby chair to watch over me.
My shadow baby ...
When he died in my arms ... thought the world had truly ended as lost a loving friend.
A real love ....
total, unconditional, ever present, never judgmental ..
he was love in a furry coat...
For all those who have lost their special friends
and as a loving tribute to wee Nikki ..
"To live in the hearts we leave behind is not to die."
